Former FSU RB Says It’s “Dumb Sh*t” For Jimbo Fisher To Start Jacques Patrick Over Mario Pender

first_imgFormer Florida State running back Karlos Williams is upset – and a little misinformed. Saturday afternoon, Williams, who is clearly watching his alma mater take on Syracuse, tweeted out his displeasure with head coach Jimbo Fisher for starting freshman Jacques Patrick over junior Mario Pender at running back in place of injured star Dalvin Cook. The only problem? Pender is out for the contest, still recovering from a collapsed lung he suffered back in September.Screen Shot 2015-10-31 at 12.17.23 PM Williams later realized his mistake.Pender ain’t dressed. Wtf— Karlos Williams Sr (@Karlos_29_SR) October 31, 2015 Pender did return to practice this week, for what it’s worth. But he’s been listed as out since Thursday.Fisher also said that Terrance Smith, Mario Pender, Marcus Lewis, Derrick Kelly will be out for Syracuse. Ryan Hoefeld is questionable.— Curt Weiler (@CurtMWeiler) October 29, 2015Another reminder to never tweet.last_img read more

Apple reportedly investing 500 million on its game subscription service

first_img See All Now playing: Watch this: 0 Best Buy Apple has said Apple Arcade will come with games from Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Cartoon Network, Finji, Giant Squid, Klei Entertainment, Konami, Lego, Mistwalker, Sega, Snowman and Ustwo. That’s an interesting and diverse list of studios and, at this point, we don’t know precisely what all of those teams are working on. The game streaming competition is heating up. Google is working on Google Stadia, Microsoft has also demoed Project xCloud, which features similar streaming technology. But whereas Google and Microsoft will no doubt battle it out on the AAA landscape with established franchises like Forza Horizon and Assassin’s Creed, its reasonable to expect Apple Arcade to be a little smaller in scope, at least in terms of the games themselves — but $500 million is not to be scoffed at.

Apple In late March Apple announced Apple Arcade, a subscription service that allows Apple users to play games across iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV devices. Back then Apple promised that 100 exclusive games would be playable out of the gate, games that wouldn’t be available on other subscription services or even other mobile devices.But it looks like that promise may cost them. Apple may end up spending over $500 million on the service, the Financial Times reports. Sources informed the Financial Times that many of the games in the works have budgets in the millions.Video game budgets are typically huge. It’s not completely unusual for a big budget console or PC video game to cost over $200 million. That being said, the type of video games you’d expect to appear on Apple Arcade would most likely cost less. The indie-style video games you’d expect to see on Apple Arcade are usually made by much smaller development teams. CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Broccoli City Weekend Fun for Everyone

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterThe walk to FedEx Field is a long one- no matter which way you came. The trek was made more difficult by the sun that beamed down with a vengeance and wind that blew with a will. Still, that did not stop the mass of people making their way to the Broccoli City Festival on Sunday. And once they got there, it was like Mecca.In the end more than 30,000 people attended the star-studded extravaganza, filled with performances, local vendors and food, food and food.Childish Gambino entered in the center of the crowd on a platform that rose far above the audience at the 2019 Broccoli City Festival at FedEx Field in Landover, MD on April 27. (Photo by Micha Green)Broccoli City is a social enterprise co-founded by Darryl Perkins and Brandon McEachern. BC has a mission to “build thriving urban communities that sustain future generations by mobilizing and educating millennials through social impact campaigns and major events.” In 2017 BC expanded programming to a year-round schedule.There was absolutely something for everyone during Broccoli City Weekend, which spanned from Thursday until Sunday. During the week over 500 people attended a plethora of panels and events during Broccolicon, a gathering meant to inspire people to find solutions to challenges in urban communities. Thought leaders from around the world attended.(L-R) Ryan, Austin and Collin Gill are ready for business at Broccoli Festival. (Photo by George Kevin Jordan)There was a 5K run and Fitness festival at Gateway Pavillion, encouraging exercise and healthy living. The festival itself was star power on 100, with Childish Gambino and Lil Wayne as headliners with 6lack, Lil Baby, Ella Mai, Teyana Taylor and City Girls and a host of other acts, who all to the stage all Saturday.“I’m here to have fun to see Childish Gambino, Teyana Taylor, Wizkid,” Danielle Wallace, a D.M.V. resident, said Sunday. “This is like my second time. Honestly it was much more intimate last year because it was in D.C. But it’s okay to upscale.”Upscale indeed. The crowd swelled over the afternoon with thousands of people pouring into the venue up until late in the evening. But the festival was not just a chance for D.M.V. residents to turn up. It allowed many small businesses and organizations and opportunity to connect with the people.“One of our biggest things is to bring the rural to the urban,” said Xavier Brown of the Black Dirt Farm Collective. “The rural is where our grandparents came from, and the urban space is where the people are, the money and where the young people are. So we are trying to bridge that gap.”Brown and his colleagues were at the festival to introduce people to the benefits of farmers and reconnecting with the land. The Black Dirty Farm Collective hosts Black farming gatherings with the ultimate goal, “to get land and to have safe spaces for Black people, growing our agricultural knowledge.”Instead of playing video games or seeing the “Avengers” movie this weekend, Collin, Ryan and Austin Gill set up their tent and got to work. The brothers are the owners of Freres Branchiaux Candle Co., handmade candles and fragrances that are organic and non-toxic.“Me and my brothers want games, and our mom said no,” the eldest, Collin said. “She said get a job and start a business.” The boys asked their mom what was her favorite thing to buy and she told them candles, and their business was born. The boys said it only takes five to ten minutes to make the candles, and they have a host of other items for sale as well.Collin said they decided to sell their wares at the Broccoli City Festival because, “everybody said it was a big event plus, we heard it on the radio.”The Broccoli City Weekend may have culminated with the concert, but the organization has many activations and initiatives throughout the year.

Sleeping less than 6 hours may double death risk

first_imgFailing to sleep less than six hours may nearly double the risk of death in people with metabolic syndrome – a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, researchers have warned. A study found that people with metabolic syndrome who slept for more than six hours were about 1.49 times more likely to die of stroke. Conversely, those who slept less than six hours were about 2.1 times more likely to die of heart disease or stroke. For those who got more sleep, the risk of death was more modest, the researchers said. The short sleepers with metabolic syndrome were also 1.99 times more likely to die from any cause compared to those without metabolic syndrome. “If you have several heart disease risk factors, taking care of your sleep and consulting with a clinician if you have insufficient sleep is important if you want to lower your risk of death from heart disease or stroke,” said lead author Julio Fernandez-Mendoza, Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. For the study, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, the team selected 1,344 adults (average age 49 years, 42 per cent male) who agreed to spend one night in a sleep laboratory. The results showed that 39.2 per cent of the participants had at least three of the risk factors — body mass index (BMI) higher than 30 and elevated total cholesterol, blood pressure, fasting blood sugar and triglyceride levels. During an average follow-up of 16.6 years, 22 per cent of the participants died. “Future clinical trials are needed to determine whether lengthening sleep, in combination with lowering blood pressure and glucose, improves the prognosis of people with the metabolic syndrome,” Fernandez-Mendoza said.last_img read more
